I followed the instructions as showed (/blog/2022/openpgp-card-alpha-ver%C3%B6ffentlichung-f%C3%BCr-nitrokey-3).
At the point:
$ nitropy nk3 update opcard-rs-0.2.0.zip
Command line tool to interact with Nitrokey devices 0.4.31
Firmware image variant (lpc55, nrf52):
I am not sure how to proceed.
If you have NitroKey 3A Mini, most probably you should use:
nitropy nk3 update --variant nrf52 file.zip
as 3A uses nrf52 chip (3C uses lpc55).
Thank you very much for your help. Since I do have a Nitrokey 3A Mini, I selected nrf52.
However, the process failed.
What is the best way to share the log file?
The Nitrokey 3A NFC & Nitrokey 3C NFC both use the LPC55.
The Nitrokey 3A Mini uses the nRF52.
@bguser I think you have simply downloaded the wrong file,
opcard-rs-0.2.0.zip looks wrong.
If you have a mini, try this file: https://github.com/Nitrokey/nitrokey-3-firmware/releases/download/v1.2.2-alpha.20221130/alpha-nk3am-nrf52-v1.2.2-alpha.20221130.zip
Thank you very much for your reply and advice. With the above will I be able to use / load my private PGP keys onto the Nitrokey 3A Mini and decrypt my emails or will I need to wait for another, future firmware update?
Yes, with the alpha firmware this should work. But please keep in mind that this is in an alpha state, means it’s very likely that user data might get lost between one alpha version to another and there might still be major bugs - thus we do not recommend to use the alpha release for production use…
